Tomorrow. EBRPPS should be close there is over 1,540 students in our public school this kids can't handle the cold wheater. There has been four kids fainted because of how bad the wheater is. If they come tomorrow it looks like it can be really bad. And the roads are frozed and they won't be able to get home the roads would be to slippery. I don't think they would walk home. Or stay overnight at school. Its to cold for them to come to school. tomorrow i think that school should be called off.

They should have closed all the schooles in louisiana. Its too colded.Tomorrow thwy shouls close all the school because itss to damn cold for this kind of wheater.

Please add ITI Technical College to the list of school closures.

why do the EBR parish schools always seem to be the last to make the decision? all the parishes around baton rouge have closed but there is still no notice.

The Governor has issued a state of emergency. DOTD has urged people to stay off the roads. Severe winter storm warnings exist. Yet, EBR schools are not being called off? Come on... let these kids stay home. Many buildings are outside or students must walk outside to go to the cafeteria and bathrooms. Pipes and plumbing risk being frozen or broken. Can you picture 500+ kids @ a school w/ no running water... no place to go to the bathroom or wash their hands? Insane....

What? WHhy do Southern University students have school? In 2009, I got in a car accident going to class to take my final when it snowed the night before and Southern University in EBR didn't cancel school. That is unsafe for the students who stay off.
